But it is always important when traveling that safety is the most important thing. Always make sure to tell others where you are and how long you'll be there. Contacting your embassy and informing them of your stay incase something bad was to happen, and above all always be aware of your surroundings, try to travel in groups, keep your important items such as passport, wallet, phone close to you at all times and hard for others to get ahold of. Follow your gut, if you ever have a feeling things may not be good, go with it and find somewhere you're more comfortable, some risks aren't worth taking. Most importantly always be cautious and never naive. Explore, have fun, learn, experience new things, but always be safe.
On that note off to Prague for the weekend with another trip offered by WSA. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone back stateside, eat extra turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pie for me.
